Kokua Earth Action Program Mini Grants
Kōkua Earth Action Program (KEAP) is an environmental service-learning initiative encouraging students to work toward creating lasting, positive change in their schools and communities. KEAP Projects allow classes to pursue their own stewardship endeavors and KEAP Mini-Grants fund these projects and help teachers from Hawaii schools advance their environmental education goals. Previous KEAP projects include lunch-waste composting programs, on-campus water catchment systems, school gardens and beach adoptions. View past KEAP projects on their website.
How to Participate in KEAP: Start by choosing an Earth Action Project and create a plan for how you’ll carry it out.
Mini-grants Available for KEAP Supplies: A small number of mini-grants are available to school groups submitting KEAP proposals. These mini-grants shall not exceed $200 per classroom teacher and can be used to purchase supplies to carry out Kokua Earth
Action Program initiatives.

Environmental Field Trip Assistance Grants
Our field trip assistance program helps bring students to outdoor sites where they can experience hands-on learning about Hawaii’s environment. The Kokua Hawai’i Foundation offers financial assistance to Hawai’i public schools which otherwise could not afford to participate in environmental field trips. Applications for the 2014-15 school year are being accepted now through March 1, 2015 for funding up to $200 per teacher or $1,000 per school.
